talk about how his sons would compete. he would say that he would be downstairs in his basement and when he wanted a beverage or something from the upstairs, he would tell one of his sons, hey, go up and get me a drink. and the son would race back and he would time him. then he would come and tell, jim, he did it in 9.5 seconds. can you beat it? he would run up there and do it even quicker. so this family has had a history of competing since the time that they were little. you may think this is a super bowl, but these brothers want to beat each other! >> reporter: they certainly do. the beautiful thing, is we get to see how it's all going to turn out a very short time from now, stop talking about it and see it actually happen. be sure and join us later on this evening for a special show. we'll hear from bubba around town. i'll be here with you, with mark ybanez. until then, reporting live from new orleans, joe fonzi, ktvu channel 2news. >> thank you very much, joe and bubba. this weekend, the big easy is one big party.
